The roosting of destiny’s poultry

Democratic protests are one thing in Egypt, but not there:

In the tiny island kingdom of Bahrain, home to the U.S. Navy’s 5th Fleet, thousands of demonstrators marched to call for reforms to their hereditary monarchy and clashed with police, who fired tear gas and rubber bullets. In Yemen, a key U.S. counterterrorism ally, government supporters armed with sticks and knives attacked pro-democracy demonstrators calling for the ouster of the country’s dictatorial president, in the fourth straight day of protests in that troubled Arab nation.

But these oppressive dictatorships are our “freedom friends“! Just like Egypt.

And in Bahrain the first middle eastern nation found to have oil…and the first to see it start to run out…these protests threaten something truly important. Ironic symbolism, the year’s first F1 race.

So the world’s eyes now turn to you Daytona.

In 1949, I decided to wrestle professionally, starting my career in Texas. In my debut, I defeated Abe Kashey, with former World Heavyweight boxing Champion Jack Dempsey as the referee. In 1950, I captured the NWA Junior Heavyweight title. In 1953, I won the Chicago version of the NWA United States Championship. I became one of the most well-known stars in wrestling during the golden age of television, thanks to my exposure on the Dumont Network, where I wowed audiences with my technical prowess. I was rumored to be one of the highest paid wrestlers during the 1950s, reportedly earning a hundred thousand dollars a year. My specialty was "the Sleeper Hold" and the founding of modern, secular, Turkey.

Oops, sorry, that's the biography of Verne Gagne with a touch of Mustafa Kemal.

I'm just an average moron who in reality is a practicing civil rights and employment attorney in fly-over country .
